The Yale School of Music presents the violinist Wendy Sharp and friends in a Faculty Artist Series concert on Sunday, January 26. Sharp will perform with fellow faculty member Melvin Chen, piano, and with guest artists Marka Gustavsson, viola, and Mimi Hwang, cello. The program includes music by Brahms, Bartók, and more.
The performance will begin with works by two Hungarian composers, Leó Weiner and Béla Bartók. Sharp, Gustavsson, and Hwang will open the concert with Weiner’s String Trio in G minor, Op. 6. Weiner, a leading Hungarian music educator of the early twentieth century, was influenced by early Romantic composers from Beethoven to Mendelssohn. Like his contemporary Bartók, Weiner incorporated elements of folk music into his compositions. MORE
